||1906 1C PR66 Red and Brown NGC. CAC. Despite a mintage of only 1,725 pieces, the proof 1906 Indian cent does not become truly scarce until the PR66 grade level, though there it is particularly challenging. This representative displays vivid violet-red, forest-green, and mint-gold toning over each side, while the devices are struck to full definition and the eye appeal is proportionately high. Census: 18 in 66 (2 in 66+ Red and Brown, 2 in 66 S). Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
Realized $1703.75. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
